“Ear Bleed­ing Coun­try: The Best Of” CHERRY RED

Exclaim! - - NEWS -

Oc­to­ber 26. First is­sued in 2002, Ear Bleed­ing Coun­try is the only ca­reer-span­ning com­pi­la­tion of Di­nosaur Jr. This is the first time this al­bum has been made avail­able on vinyl! (Also avail­able as an ex­panded 2CD set.) Sev­eral tracks are drawn from the band’s early ca­reer in the 1980s, when they recorded for in­de­pen­dent la­bels like Homestead and SST. Among them are the clas­sic “Freak Scene” and their cover of The Cure’s “Just Like Heaven”. Most of the com­pi­la­tion sam­ples the best of Di­nosaur Jr.’s out­put af­ter sign­ing with Warner Bros in 1990, in­clud­ing “The Wagon”, “What­ever’s Cool With Me”, “Out There”, and “Feel The Pain”.
